Welcome to LPD!

WHO WE ARE

The Livermore-Pleasanton-Dublin Branch of AAUW, is one of over 1000 branches nationwide, representing more than 100,000 members who seek personal lifelong development and advocate social change and public policy consistent with gender equity.

Executive board meetings are held monthly on the first Wednesday and are open to all members. A monthly newsletter, The Grapevine, is sent to all the members and informs them of the monthly program, interest group meetings, and other activities.

Funds are raised during the year for Scholarships, the AAUW Fund, and for Tech Trek – a one-week summer camp at Stanford University.
